Known for Quality Historical Men's Military Uniforms and Civilian Clothing Reproductions- Since 1975

 

#1008-Lee64 Frockcoat-This uniform is copied from the famous Matthew Brady photo of General Lee taken late April 1865 on the back porch of Lee’s home in Richmond. This portrait is often referred to as the “Back Porch Uniform”. It is not known if this coat is in existence today, however, it was most likely Cadet Grey- Lee’s preferred color choice.

Lee's Back Porch Uniform

#1008-Lee64 Cadet Grey Frockcoat "Back Porch Uniform"

Click here for a comparison of all Four Lee Frockcoats

 The collar and cuffs are plain without trim color. Sleeve Braid was not used- making this a type of field uniform. The collar is a laydown civilian style and has three five pointed stars without the typical general’s wreath surrounding the stars- usually indicative of a full Colonel. Virginia State seal Staff buttons are sewn on the front in the General’s button pattern- four sets of 2. 

Our reproduction is made in Cadet Grey wool and has a Black Polished Cotton lining with natural cotton sleeve lining. Back Pockets with flaps in the folds of the skirt. Skirt is left raw- typical in those days. Because this is an exact reproduction of one specific uniform, we can’t offer any changes from the original. 

Made in USA!
